If you have time to spare and would like to ‘give back’ to your local Nottingham NHS hospitals, then becoming a volunteer at Nottingham Hospitals Charity is a great way to get involved.
Whether you’re looking for a regular commitment or a one off day to help out, there are plenty of ways to support!
How being a volunteer with us makes a difference
- Use your experience to support a local charity

- Gain new skills and have fun
You can read about some of the many projects we fund on our impact hub.
Where could I volunteer?
At our Charity Hub
You can find us at Queen’s Medical Centre, on B Floor just behind Costa. At our Charity hub, you could volunteer by selling merchandise, taking donations and chatting to patients, their families and NHS staff about the Charity.
At our fundraising events
Be part of our team for the day, by helping out at one of our fundraising events. It could be our Abseil, where daring fundraisers scale down Queen’s Medical Centre. Or perhaps you could be a steward at the annual Robin Hood Half Marathon?
As an ambassador for our Charity
Help us to say thank you to our fundraisers and donors. Visit groups and organisations taking a large Charity cheque, saying thank you to the group and taking some photos with them. You could also visit organisations to do talks on who we are and promote our fundraising opportunities and represent us at public events.
Take a look at our current Volunteer Opportunities for you to get stuck into. From one-off to permanent roles, there is something for everyone to get stuck into.
Meet our volunteers
“It’s very worthwhile being involved. It can be fun and I love marshalling at the marathon. It’s a nice group of people. I really enjoyed doing Treats Tuesday. Without the Charity the Children’s hospital wouldn’t have the murals and enhancements and the breast cancer waiting areas wouldn’t have been refurbished”
"Volunteering brings me great satisfaction as I witness the positive impact it has on the lives of those in need. I am dedicated with my husband to leading by example and involving my son in this noble cause, instilling in him as we grow the values of compassion, sharing, and community service."
"It’s my way of giving back to the hospital and learning at the same time. I enjoy the whole process from initial photograph through to editing and producing the final picture. This is not the sort of photography I usually do, but I do enjoy it and I’m learning new things."

Becoming a volunteer for the Charity is easy. When you know where you would like to volunteer your time, I’ll invite you in for a chat and work with you to ensure that volunteering is right for you. We’ll then work together to get your induction started and do any necessary checks. Please note that some of the roles will require a DBS check.
After you completed everything, you’ll be ready to go. I’ll keep in touch and invite you along to any upcoming activities and we’ll have regular meetings either as one to one or as a group where you can meet your fellow volunteers.
All our volunteers, no matter what their role, play a key part in helping us to make a difference to patient care across Nottingham’s hospitals. We look forward to working with you and helping you give back to your local community.
